Step 7 ‘Humbly asked Him to remove our shortcomings’
12 x 12 Page 74 last paragraph.This improved perception of humility…
look up: suffering
Q1. Do you have an improved perception of humility?
And do you have a revolutionary change in your outlook?
Write this down:
EGO: Ease God Out.
The ego is all about me me me. Used rightly, self-will is a gift from God. No self-will, no sobriety or recovery. Don’t denigrate self-will. Without it you roll up and die. You can use self-will in a self-destructive way. You bring your self will to Quiet Time every day. How do you think you get to Quiet Time if you don’t do it with self-will? What we don’t want is ego which is selfishness and self-centredness brought to the max.
Q2. What does ego mean to you and what does living a humble life mean?
Are they opposites?
Q3. Write about your self-will.
Is it important?
How you have used and abused your self-will?
Q4 Write about physical and emotional suffering. How does that come about? Then write about using your self-will to chose to stay in emotional suffering or using the self-will to go to God, others and choose humility and to be the best person you can – even though you may have physical or emotional pain.
[If you only do one question make it this one.You are going to glean a lot about yourself. Take the time. Do it. You need to know about yourself and how you are operating. And you need to make an action plan so you can live in humility and have serenity and have peace. That is our God-given right. And it is the end product of true recovery].
